The Forestry department established two new laboratories in the past four years (1 – for forest ecology and 2 – entomology), three were radically renewed (1 – for ergonomic research; 2 – growth, yield and dendrochronology and 3 – remote sensing). A laboratory for genetic research is in the phase of planning and building. The genetic laboratory will merge the area of plant and animal genetics. The new established laboratory for entomology was authorized for diagnostic official sample by Medical plant protection law, which is leading on MKGP, Phitosanitaric administration Republic of Slovenia.
